Dann StuppBased on a billboard, UFC lightweight contender Tony Ferguson figures “I’ve got some weight to cut.”

“El Cucuy” today tweeted a snapshot of a billboard for UFC 216 – with one minor error – and had a sense of rumor about (via Twitter):

Yes, Ferguson (22-3 MMA, 12-1 UFC) is fighting Kevin Lee (16-2 MMA, 9-2 UFC) for a title – but it’s not the interim featherweight one. Instead, he fights for the interim lightweight belt in UFC 216’s pay-per-view headliner on Oct. 7 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Ferguson, who’s No. 3 in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA lightweight rankings, and No. 8-ranked Lee are likely fighting for the chance to next meet reigning 155-pound champ Conor McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC), who recently took a hiatus from MMA for a blockbuster boxing bout with Floyd Mayweather this past month. However, McGregor hasn’t necessarily committed to facing the Ferguson vs. Lee winner next.

Check out Ferguson and Lee’s recent and heated face-off above.
